“Once Upon a Time” returns to ABC, channel 7 in Queens, on September 30 at 8 p.m., and with magic now in Storybrooke, this is shaping up to be quite the exciting season. On Saturday, Adam Horowitz tweeted out the titles of episodes 4, 5, and 6, and it’s not too difficult to guess what these episodes could be about:
“Ep. 4 The Crocodile Ep. 5 The Doctor Ep. 6 Tallahassee #titles #OnceUponATime #Saturdaytidbits 8 days to go!”
The curse may be broken and the residents of Storybrooke may remember their fairy tale selves, but that doesn’t mean new characters won’t be introduced in season 2. In fact, one of the characters coming is Captain Hook, and it does seem likely that “The Crocodile” will have something to do with his story and the twist “Once Upon a Time” will bring for it. The previews so far have done a good job of giving a glimpse at that hook, but it’s just a tease.
Meanwhile, if “The Doctor” is about anyone but Dr. Whale, it would be shocking. Dr. Whale may be the most mysterious character on the show right now since his fairy tale identity has yet to be revealed. While previously it had been speculated that he could perhaps be on Regina’s side because of a quick shot making it look that way, one of the sneak peeks (which you can watch here) out for the premiere shows that he’s with the townspeople against the Evil Queen. In the clip, Regina does say, “listening to you has been enough suffering for all of us.” Is that a clue about his identity? Will that or something similar come up during episode 5?
Finally, there’s episode 6’s “Tallahassee” title, which could be referencing Emma’s own history. It has been mentioned that she’s spent time in Florida, so could they be exploring more of what happened to her then? Emma’s world has been turned upside down now that she’s reunited with her parents and has learned that what Henry had been telling her is true. Could part of her accepting everything and getting to know her parents involve her looking back at her time in Florida and telling Snow White/Mary Margaret and Prince Charming/David what they’ve missed all these years?
“Once Upon a Time” season 2 premieres September 30 at 8 p.m. on ABC 7 in Queens. What do you think of the latest episode titles? Will you be watching season 2?
